evening to you. $3.99 at this gas station right here. the timing is not good for this. the economy is fragile, and all the money that is going into gas tanks, it would and could be going into instead groceries, maybe a movie out, maybe a dinner out. at gas stations across the country, customers are asking the same question. what could possibly send gas prices up 43 cents in a month? that's an extra $8.60 on a 20-gallon car. in chicago, more than that, up 70 cents in a month to 4.$4.22 gallon. for taxi driver ray hubert, that's real money. >> it digs into my pocket. i pay for my own gas, nobody else pays for it. >> reporter: in los angeles, up 50 cents in a month to $4.28, some stations charging more than $5 a gallon. >> it doesn't make sense. we went to vegas last weekend and the prices were like $1.50 less. >> reporter: were portland to portland, gas prices have risen every day for the last month. >> the rising gasoline prices is extraordinary for this time of year. we usually see this happen as we go into the summer driving season. >> reporter: what's going on? analysts say the r

are strong as a nation, and our economy is strong enough to recover from this piece by piece. what about that? >> well, this is where i would be critical of the president, ed. i think we would have faster economic recovery if we weren't laying off police officers and firefighters and school teachers all over the country. if you look at the reagan era, one of the things reagan did was a huge ramp-up when the economy was in trouble of government employees. but without question, the deficit is coming down to where it should be. which is slightly above spending or a balanced budget. it's going in that direction. the president has had the smallest growth in discretionary spending in numerous presidents as opposed to the big spender george w. bush who came ahead of him. >> dave, stay with us. i want to bring in steve benen, msnbc contributor. good to have you with us tonight. why are mainstream journalists repeating this lie about president obama not having a plan to replace sequester? >> well, i can only speculate about what brooks and others are thinking. but i would think in all likelihood, ther
and other theatre, and that's a big effect on local economies, in areas like rampton rode, virginia, san diego. and it's an effect affect that will be clearly felt on contractors who rely on navy contracts for shipbuildings. so i think the affects will be gradual. no one can really tell when the agencies will sort of pull the plug. and as i said, the cuts nay not take effect for that long. >> suarez: you said at the outset there is a political dimension to this. of course as we enter the final week there most certainly is what is the they are telling opinion researchers if friday comes and goes without a deal? >> well, i think part of the problem is that many americans don't really understand what sequestration is. it's become this obsession in washington. but many people are only just now beginning to become aware of it. but the recent, a recent poll by the pew center for research said that many more republicans would be held responsible than would the obama administration. on the other hand, as i said earlier, republicans have been putting pressure on the administration for two years,

the state of the economy, he probably should have lost and he won not just because of mitt romney's inadequacies, but because he built the finest political organization in recent american history with more than 1 million volunteers. >> you share that in common with barack obama. his hometown of chicago. your hometown is chicago. >> i met barack obama in 2002 and at that time he had just lost for the house of representatives. he told me when we first met when my aunt had died and he came over to pay respects to my cousin's house. he said he was going to run for the u.s. senate. i remember thinking, wow, that's a lot of nerve. he just lost for the house and he is running for the senate? yes, i knew him and i knew a lot of the people around him in chicago for many years because i grew up in chicago politics. my mother was a politician. my mother new barack obama in the '80s. so, you know, in some ways i'm familiar with the political environment that he came out of and i think that, you know, it's giving me a little bit more insight going back with these folks for quite a long period
to the increase in spending is bad news for the economy and he's trying to pump every nickel that he can out of public coffers. >> neil cavuto was talking about this the other day, neither the republicans nor the democrats like the so-called sequester and just for our viewers probably know already. 85 billion dollars in spending reductions, i guess. >> right. >> that have pain for both sides. a big defense cut and then cuts to domestic programs, so, the republicans don't like the former and the democrats don't like the latter. so there's plenty of pain there for both sides. but he was talking about the side that look at consternation over 85 billion. we've got 16 trillion going on 17 trillion dollar debt and they can't come anymore close. they're so outraged over this 85 billion about to be cut and can't reach agreement and demand more tax hikes and demand that cuts come from elsewhere. and this doesn't bode well for that 16 going on 17 trillion dollar debt, chris and any leadership, really, from anyone on tackling it. >> well, bowles and simpson are going out and-- >> those are the guys wit
is really happening right now in our economy. what better indicator than to look at wal-mart sales because they're now reportedly putting out their quarterly sales about a billion dollars short of what they expected. fox business network stuart varney joins me on that. as wal-mart goes, so is going the nation perhaps, stuart? >> oh, yes. this isn't just one single company, one single retailer. this is america's economy. very good indicator of that and the news is not good. as you suggested there, martha, their sales are flat to down in the same stores over a comparable period. they took in about a billion dollars less than they were expecting to take in. you got to bear in end into the gas prices have gone straight up. that leaves less money available to go spend at wal-mart. taxes for everybody went up on january the 1st. same story. less money for people to spend at wal-mart. this is a disappointing indicator for the overall economy. it confirms we're still pretty weak. martha: you get that divide. you see what is going on with the ground on retail sales like you're reporting right here
for his overspending and they're creating real peril for the american economy, long-term substantive peril, all of the stuff that you just had on. this is been going on for, 20, 30 years, we're going to lose the statue of liberty and the buildings are going to fall down and no police on the street and i heard that when i was mayor of new york, i had to cut 2.3, 2.4 billion and they tried to make it sound like the city was going to disappear. we cut it, the city is better off than it's been before. and fiscal discipline is something that a president is going to have to bring to government. if he couldn't, it's hard for the legislator to do it. he's been fiscally the most undisciplined president in the united states. >> couple of things, the fact that he doesn't seem it remember it was his white house idea and he okayed it on the sequester and either means he has a bad memory, which is not a good sign or he's trying to be petty or trying now that he finds himself in hot water to blame somebody else that looks petty. the second thing for the life of me, i don't understand this and see if, if
that depend on it, or would they rather put hundreds of thousands of jobs and our entire economy at risk just to protect a few special interest tax loophole that is benefit only the wealthiest americans and biggest corporations? that's the choice. >> is there another way with only days to go before the automatic spending cuts kick in? re-enter the bipartisan budget cutters, the duo of simpson and bowles. >> there's no sfri in the country that makes cuts across the board. you try to cut those things that have the least adverse effect on productivity. second, we are cutting those areas where we actually need to invest education, infrastructure, research, and, third, they don't make any cuts in those things that are going faster than the economy. that's stupid, stupid, stupid. >> with us, former white house press secretary and a new msnbc contributor robert gibbs. cyber wars. china's army now targeting u.s. pipelines and nuclear plants. with us to discuss, the authors of a new report tracing the attacks to military headquarters in shanghai. plus, play of the day. while the press corps was banned
